On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about anatomy of the periodontium, focusing on the gingiva.
“So in the perio world, I like to explain to my patients, your keratinized tissue could be like the palm of your hand and the skin on the palm of your hand, more firm and protective and your non keratinized would be if you were to flip your hand over and you were to grab the loose skin on the back of your hand.”
“So when you’re probing your patient, you are essentially probing how many millimeters of free gingiva is present.”
